STATEHOUSE — State Sen. Randy Head (R-Logansport) announced the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the Page Program.
This full-day interactive program gives students in grades six through 12 the opportunity to tour the Indiana Statehouse, observe session debates on the Senate floor, and assist staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students will also meet with their state senator.
“Paging at the Senate is well worth the trip to the Statehouse,” Head said. “Students will get an up-close view of the legislative process in action, meet their Senator and spend time in the historic Indiana Statehouse. I encourage families in Senate District 18 to sign their children up to serve as a page.”
The 2017 Senate Page Program will run from Jan. 23 through mid-April. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to sign up early. Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays during the legislative session starting at 8:30 a.m. and dismissing at 3:30 p.m. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
